Let’s hear it for the Nine-Nine!
NBC is adding five episodes to its original 13-episode order for Season 6 of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” the network announced Friday.
Yes, you smarties, that would bring the total to 18 episodes for the 2018-19 season aka “NINE (+) NINE!”
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will make its NBC debut at midseason. The peacock network saved the cop comedy this past spring after it was canceled by Fox, where it ran for five seasons.
Last month, showrunner Dan Goor told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour what to expect from the series now that it’s changed networks: “I think you’re giving us an immense amount of credit to think that we’ve planned a whole season in advance. But yes, it is – the mandate from NBC… has been, ‘We know this show, we love this show, that’s why we picked up this show, please keep making the same show.'”
For its first NBC season, Goor also said the show’s writers were “actively talking about” a #MeToo episode. Also, Craig Robinson’s Pontiac Bandit will return.
The series is executive produced by Michael Schur, Dan Goor, David Miner and Luke Del Tredici. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is produced by Universal Television, Fremulon, Dr. Goor Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment. The show stars Andy Samberg, Terry Crews, Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero, Chelsea Peretti and Joe Lo Truglio.
